Student Involvement 

The Usdan Center is the hub of campus activity! Learn more about the offices and organizations listed below and find out how you can get involved!

Located on the first floor in the Usdan Administrative Offices, the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development (SALD) provides advice, guidance and acts as a resource for students and student organizations.  Their goal is to help student organizers be successful in planning social, cultural, intellectual, political, and recreational programs.  The Office enhances out-of-classroom experiences that promote personal development and leadership training.  Visit the Student Activities and Leadership Develoment website.

The Usdan Center Activities Board (UCAB) plans creative campus-wide activites that bring students and friends together.  Programs occur every Thursday night in the Usdan Center.  To keep up with UCAB's weekly activities, friend them on Facebook, add the semester's events to your calendar, or visit the UCAB webpage.

The Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA) is located on the first floor, and is responsible for recognizing and funding over 200 student organizations.  They also serve as the voice for students on campus in important policy and decision making.  Visit the WSA website.

The Usdan Student Music Co-op (USMC) is a student organization recognized and funded by the WSA.  It was formed by a group of Wesleyan student musicians to help maintain the Usdan Center Music Rehearsal Room in partnership with the Usdan Operations department.  This group helps create policies that govern the space and advocates on behalf of other Wesleyan musicians for enhancements to the room, upgrades to equipment and the addition of musical instruments.  For more information, or to find out how you can become a member of this group please email

As part of the Usdan Center Operations Student Employee Leadership Program, students are given the opportunity to work in different areas and aspects of the operation of the University Center.  We look at work at the Usdan Center not as a typical "work study" job but an additional learning experience outside of the classroom.  It is important to us that we stress to our students that if they are not willing to be part of a dynamic learning environment where they will be asked to actively think, then this is not the right place for them.  Each job provides the student with the ability to grow personally and laterally in their position based on their commitment and performance.  Students will develop several different skill sets that can easily be applied or adapted to any chosen profession upon graduation.  For more information on how to be a member of the Usdan Center team please email
